In a new interview with, INTO ETERNITY guitarist Justin Bender discussed the addition of vocalist Amanda Kiernan (THE ORDER OF CHAOS) to the band in place of Stu Block, who is now a member of ICED EARTH:

"Amanda's a treat and an excellent singer," Bender enthuses. "She came ready to go and needed zero training as far as how to do anything on stage performance wise. She's just a great frontperson - she's really the full package. It is kind of surprising how easy of a transition it was to add her to the group. She does it all great and makes it sound so good. As a band, we don't ever think, 'It's too bad our singer is a girl now.' We're fully into it and we think she sounds awesome.

She sings the parts like they're supposed to sound, so really it doesn't matter. It's not like she's going all NIGHTWISH with them and singing operatic. She's not doing what a lot of other female-fronted bands are doing; she's just simply giving the songs the justice that they require."
